Bowl with Abstract Floral Pattern


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 300

The decoration of this bowl is similar in style to the Bowl with Abstract Spiral Design (L.2000.77.2). Here the pinwheel design in the center gives way to alternating petals and playful lines suggesting a stylized flower.
